Problem Statement

Bribery is a significant problem due to its associated economic and social costs to organizations and society. Participating in bribery adversely impacts the reputation of an organization (Dion, 2020). From a criminal justice perspective, bribery is a type of organized crime. It is imperative to note that bribery is a type of corruption, with the latter denoting various unethical malpractices in organizations. Despite the widespread recognition of this problem, it has persisted in private and public organizations.

Attempts to eliminate bribery have not yielded the desired results. Although firms engaging in bribery could bolster their value by attaining merger completions and eliminating regulatory bottlenecks, the long-term consequences are undesirable (Bahoo et al., 2020). Additionally, bribery has been normalized in some organizations, making it challenging to eliminate it. An employee who bribes to be recognized as the top performing worker will oppose attempts to address the vice. Organizations must eliminate cases of corruption committed internally and externally.
